In the middle of the argument, Danish media personnel Rasmus Tantholdt presented his media accreditation. “You’ve invited the whole world here. Why can’t we film? It’s a public place,” he said.

Even after showing his accreditation and assuring that he has permission to film, the security guards continued their threats. Security claimed that if they didn’t stop filming, their cameras would have broken.

“You can break the camera. Do you want to break it? Go ahead. You’re threatening us by breaking the camera.” said Rasmus Tantholdt.

Rasmus Tantholdt later claimed that an apology has been issued to him by the delegates of Qatar’s Supreme Committee. “I don’t think that the message from the top in Qatar has reached all the security guards. Therefore, it can be argued that there are some who have misunderstood the situation, but at the same time it tells a lot about what it is like in Qatar. There is the fact that you can be attacked and threatened when you report as a free media.”

“This is not a free and democratic country. My experience after visiting 110 countries in the world is: The more you have to hide, the more difficult it is to report from there,” claimed Rasmus Tantholdt.

However, this is not the first time that journalists and media personnel have been blocked in Qatar. Now with the FIFA World Cup on the horizon, these incidents are sure to bring a bad name to the hosts.
